This isn't just an exercise for your upper body or just your lower body. This is a full body exercise. It works your biceps, triceps, shoulders, delts, abs, lats, glutes, etc., if done properly.
With all of the tributes I have seen and heard, one thing is clear. Prince made his mark. Not only in the history of music, but in people's lives. To hear the way people who spoke of him, that knew him personally, he made his impact upon all that he met. He left his mark.
What started off as a simple request, took on a life of its own.... Real quick. One of my students, who had not spoken much up until then, had asked if I could add some 80's music to my playlist.
I cannot remember the last time I left one of my classes without smiling. Is it because I love what I do... Sure! However, I also see how it affects the lives of the people who attend the classes.

Do you find yourself making excuses to skip your workouts? Worse, does your "support system" provide you with these reasons why you should be anywhere but in your thirty minute sweat session?
What keeps people from stepping into the gym? What keeps them from lacing up those running shoes? What stops them from opening the door to a group exercise class? The dreaded words, "I CAN'T". Whether it is "I can't run" or "I can't do what they are doing in this class" or "I can't use any of the equipment in the machines." Rid your mind of the phrase "I can't." If that is just too impossible to do, replace it with: "I can't YET!"
